WELCOME TO ELM TREE CLASS
Teacher: Mrs Parkin
Welcome back to what continues to be a strange and uncertain time for yourself and your children. Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to assure you that our priority, as always, is the health and safety of the children. However, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
We believe that a love of reading is crucial to open doors for our children at The Green Infant School and we partner with parents and carers to give children the best start to their reading journey. Books are at the heart of our curriculum at The Green Infant School and children will be heard read and read to several times throughout the week.
Our expectation is that children will read at home x4 a week with a parent/carer. This is recorded in the children’s planner. Regular reading will be rewarded with Dojo points!
Children will take home x1 Read Write Inc book which they have been reading in school and they should be able to read independently as well as x1 picture book to share.
Each term children will receive a Home Learning Menu. There are lots of different optional activities to pick and choose from to last you the whole term. Once you have completed an activity, please upload it using a photo/video on your Class Dojo portfolio. Each activity is worth 5 Dojo points! As always, points mean prizes! Please find the menus on the Curriculum pages below.
- Please remember to bring in a water bottle with your child's name on it every day.
- Your child should have their book bag with their reading books and planner in school every day.
- New books will be sent out every Friday.
- PE kits with your child's name on it should be in school every day and taken home for washing at the weekends if appropriate.
